Galaxy tab 2 10 owners, do not flash this, I have to make a custom one for it first (larger res and screen), I will post this as soon as I can!

Who's tired to using the vol/sleep buttons in recovery? I know I am, just about every device is getting some kind of touch recovery, why not the Gtabs?

Presenting touch recovery for the Galaxy Tab 2 series (I need a tester or 2 for the Gtab 2 10.1". PM me), based on TWRP, ported and custom themed by yours truly!

Special Thanks to:

- The Team Win Recovery Project <link>
- Xoomdev for creating CWM
- Chuck, my teammate, and sadly his grab 7 that gave its life for this recovery (RIP little guy hah!)

Procedure

Already Rooted with CWM recovery?
1. Download the cwm flash version of the recovery
2. Flash it using recovery, reboot and you are done.

New Gtab 2 user, not rooted or CWM flashed?
1. Download the img file instead.
2. User Heimdall, or Odin to write a new recovery.
3. Then flash my root zip

Downloads
1. TWRP Recovery CWM flash
2. TWRP Recovery IMG
3. Root zip via recovery

Enjoy!

YAY!!!!

Installing now, hopefully my tab doesn't get sacrificed... Good thing i bought the accidental damage warranty.

I'll report any problems, I need to flash the new tab2lite, so it's a perfect test.

Do you know how it handles backups? cwm backs up the full tab including internalSD. That resulted in backups bigger than i can fit on the xtra 2gb sd i had

UPDATE: i have installed and it's working great so far.

Thank you so much! While I think CWM is the gold standard in recovery I just love TWRP's touch recovery.

Just flashed it. Works great. I love how I can now see/flash from the internal storage. CWM wouldn't let me do that.

I flashed it and it works great, it takes some time to get used to but once it becomes familiar.... CWM who?

I tried every single major option, and no problems to report back.

Sincerely, thank you for this release, it is always good to learn a new way to do things.

Factory reset wipes things twice. Give it a try.



Doing a system restore now of a backup I made before trying out that new Tab2Lite ROM. Can't get back to AOKP fast enough!

System backup / restore worked fine.



How does one take a screenshot in recovery?
